Very educational and such cute koalas to see. Look but don't touch. Best to come around 8 for feeding time. Don't forget to make a donation in the koala shaped boxes all around the place.

The koala hospital is a great experience for tourist to see a koala up close (no touching). A good time to visit is between 8-9 am as the koalas are active as it is feeding time. The talk at 3 pm is also a good time as there are talks by the carers as they look after the sick koalas.... More

We're definitely animal people but can't imagine that this wouldn't be a wonderful experience for anyone. Educational, interesting, and heartwarming.

The Koala Hospital do a wonderful job and we always enjoy visiting. They do a public feeding at 3pm which kids love, but you can still visit any time outsie of this and see the Koalas, learn about them and purchase memorabillia. It really is worth a visit if in Port Macquarie. Yoo can also spend as little as 15... More

We had an interesting visit to the Koala Hospital, There are informative guided tours around the Koala Hospital at 3pm and the hospital is open between 8am and 4.30pm to walk around and look at the rescued koalas. We found the tour very interesting and we were able to see the koalas being feed by volunteers.

Its a great place to learn about koalas. They have 150 volunteers that are very passionate about helping the injured koalas. We adopted a koala her name is Ocean Summer.
